Differences in the test
by: IELTS buddy

It doesn't make any difference who you are now, just what you want to use it for.

If you want to study abroad you take the Academic Test. If you want to work abroad, you take the General Test.

These differences are explained on the

IELTS buddy homepage.



I don't really understand your second question. The same rules as above would apply to your wife, whatever her English level.

Thanks

english requirement and difference
by: Anonymous

I don't think they make any difference in marking on the basis of student or employee status.

Further, your partner also probably needs to pass IELTS, but with a lower target marks as compared to you as an applicant. For Australia the requirement is 4.5 and For New Zealand it is 5.0.

Can I apply for work migration using the score from the IELTS academic test?

by Rashad
(India)

Hi,

I have plan of applying for master where IELTS is compulsory. So I am thinking of writing IELTS under academics category. The question I have is 'Can I apply for work related migration using the same score or do I have to apply again under general category'?

Any suggestion for the above query will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Academic IELTS for immigration
by: IELTS buddy

Hi,

There is something about using the IELTS academic score for other purposes than study here:

http://takeielts.britishcouncil.org/choose-ielts/ielts-academic-or-ielts-general-training

It says this:

"Every organisation sets its own entry requirements. In some cases both versions of IELTS may be accepted".

So it looks like it may be possible but it is really up to the organization concerned. You'd need to check with them to be sure.

Thanks
